Bottle. Much stronger nose than the cascade hop version Edacsac. Hazy dark gold. Again pretty one dimensional. hamilton23 (619) - Alpine, California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
From a growler. Pours a nice rich copper color with foamy white head. Aroma is some citrus. Taste is grapefruit, tropical fruit notes and a bit of malt. Decent IPA. TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2013
Tap at Miltown. Pours light hazy gold with medium sized off white head. Nose is citrus, some tropical fruits, light cotton candy sweetness. Flavor is similar-refreshing beer, easy drinking. Tmoney99 (15116) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earth and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This a good brew.

12 ounce from variety pack. Nice malty body and hoppy presence. Hops shine through, but slightly malty for the dominance of citra. 574deadzone (1420) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pours the same color and head qualities as the others. Nose is big on grapefruit, lots of pine, sweet grain, some tropical fruit. Pretty sweet, but quite bitter. Seemingly lighter palate-wise than the others, a touch more active, with lots of prickly, tingly bitterness on the finish. Definitely tasty, though I like regular crooked tree more for its complexity and FF more for what they got out of the hops. Still, Crooked Tree any which way, you can’t go wrong. emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2013
Draft at Milltown. Pours a soft straw gold with two fingers of sticky off white head. Nose is woody and citrusy with a nice zesty quality and definitive malt balance. Notes of toasted grain and hints of bread show in the aroma and flavor. A light sweetness shows in the flavor and then quickly dissipates yielding a light body and dry finish. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
It basically is citra crooked tree. Nice tropical fruit and some spice/herb. Nice. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small head that quickly fades and collects at the edges. Grabs the glass well. Really nice aroma, tropical fruit, mandarin oranges, grapefruit, lemons. The taste combines all the aromas with some flowers and a nice caramel malt backbone. Super smooth and bitter finish. Very soft carbonation, medium body, oily mouthfeel. This is a great showcase for the citra hop.
